I know you all missed me very much and awaited my return with bated breath. Well I to hungered to write for you again.
Okay enough of that shit, to the meat!
Day 1 of U19 for me. Knowing that I would most likely need to use that +20 heart on Samius to get him up to snuff I chose to use McPlunderer as my enchantment test bed. Other then Samius he is currently my top guy for dealing with whatever DDo life throws at me.
Just as a quick reminder McPlunderer is/was my twf/full AA/Assassin 18/1/1 rog/arty/fghr. He was fairly tight. Right around 650 hp fair to solid dps against things looking at him, great dps vs things looking the other way and a fairly high instant kill DC (could be +3 higher as a pure rogue). ☺
Now with the changes I dumped 46 points into the assassin tree however many points it took to unlock arcane archer enough in kensei for my haste boost which I found in acrobat in a way that might be a little more useful… But almost non-left to spend in the Archer tree. Aka my build is shot.
Time to hit the old idea room, aka the pooper. While clearing my mind I hit the wiki like I often do and started to wonder.
Would 3 levels of ranger be worth it? I wouldn’t need to meet the prerequisites for AA via feats any more so the question is can I get everything I “want” from AA with just 3 levels of ranger?
Make arrows, check
Morphic arrows, check
Force Arrows, check
But not slaying arrows…
But you know soul Magic looks real good if you have cocoon twisted in as your healing… Echo of power for 4 -8 and a few bow hits and heal. Loth you might be a lot less scary real soon.
But the other nice thing that happens is you open up tempest and Deep Wood Sniper, which is really what this build is all about big dual welding with a massive ranged option.
As an added bonus I would be able to swap my dilettante feat to Paladin for a huge bonus to saves.. Might have a build for you all in a few days.
I feel for ya, man. While some of my characters have not only survived but improved with the enhancements, one build suffered a complete fail and had to seek a new purpose. It’s not all bad, of course, and there are some bugs, but generally it’s fun to relearn a bit when the end-result is a better character.
I’m loving the Deepwood Stalker’s Sniper Shot using heavy repeaters. I’ll be 2 Arti/6 Ranger/12 Rogue then TR.
